I am very happy with the screened hive bottom. I am still deciding if I should leave it on in the winter or order solid bottoms for here in Michigan, but only because of our sometimes wicked winters not through any failings of your product.
Product arrived quickly and is well-made.
The screened ware hive bottom is great.
Best I have found.
Sugar Pine is our value wood option. Beautiful, strong, takes paint or sealant well, and is more stable and lighter than more common ponderosa pine.
Western Red Cedar is our premium wood option. It is rot resistant, dimensionally stable, insulates well, and doesn't require painting or sealing.
All of our wood is sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
